Any cool trunk/hood light ideas?

Does anyone have any good ideas on what to use for hood/trunk lights? I'd like something that turns on when you open the hood or trunk, maybe with mercury switches or something, but I'm having a hard time finding something decent that would look nice and work nice.

How do the stock lights work? Do they have switches included? Thanks.

Re: Any cool trunk/hood light ideas?

Just go hit a junkyard and find a factory hood/trunk light, almost all just use a hot wire, a ground, and utilize a mercury switch as part of the assembly. Piece of cake to hook up and will look stock if you use a factory one.
